Campus Planning at San Francisco State University

CPDC's Planning + Design staff guides the long-term direction of the campus built environment within a flexible framework for physical development. We set standards for campus buildings and landscapes, leading campus and urban planning, landscape design, and building programming and design efforts to create spaces that are both nurturing and stimulating.

We work closely with Capital Project Management and the Office of Sustainability. This collaboration ensures that all development projects realize campus and national goals in waste reduction, energy and water efficiency, and greenhouse gas emission reduction.

Planning + Design is part of the Capital Planning, Design and Construction (CPDC) department within Administration and Finance.

Romberg Tiburon Campus Master Plan

Romberg Tiburon Campus Master Plan

The Romberg Tiburon Campus (formerly Romberg Tiburon Center) has never had a master plan formally prepared and adopted by the campus or the CSU Board of Trustees. An approved master plan and certified Environmental Impact Report (EIR) are required before the university can take on significant demolition and new construction projects on this site.

Indigenous Land and Territorial

Indigenous Land and Territorial Acknowledgement

San Francisco State University acknowledges the ancestral homelands of the Ohlone and Coast Miwok Peoples, whose territory includes what is known today as San Francisco and Marin Counties, and the Indigenous peoples from many nations who live and work in the Bay Area today.
